A.  Goals and Objectives (Continued)

4* Technology Research: To award cooperative agreements for research
on handicapped students1 use of technological devices and systems in
schools*

5.  Student Research: To award grants that provide research opportunities
for graduate students to enhance their professional training,

6.  Minority Research Institutes:  To provide  contracts for long-term
research on programs to improve the education of handicapped children
and youth who are members of minority groups.

7.  Research Integrati on: To provide contracts for the analysis and syn-
thesis of research findings and products which would in turn serve to
identify future research and development activities.

8.  Other Research Activities:  To provide contracts for special-purpose
research projects which relate directly to improving the education of

The outcomes of this program can be divided into three categories: (1) new
or improved products (assessment instruments, instructional materials,
technological devices/software); (2) research findings and new information;
and (3) personnel trained in research methods.

1.    Examples of new or improved products include:

a. A project at Indiana University has developed a set of validated
materials that teachers can use to increase academic learning time
and academic achievement among mildly handicapped students. These
materials include two teachers' manuals: one manual describes easy-
to-use methods to determine the amount of academic learning time
each student is engaged in during the class day; another manual
provides teachers with different approaches that can be used to
increase academic learning time and academic achievement. (E.la) (202) 245-8364ngress on the Implementation of P.L. 94-142:
